Shrimp Curry Noodles Ingredients

  • canola oil for sauteeing
  • 1 Small red onion sliced into thin half-moons
  • 2 cloves Garlic sliced
  • 5 slices ginger or galangal
  • 1 to 2 stalks lemongrass (tanglad) white part only, sliced diagonally
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 400 ml coconut cream (kakang gata)
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf sliced
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons fish sauce (patis)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 250 Grams Shrimp peeled and deveined, seasoned with salt
  • 250 Grams egg noodles (pancit canton)
  • handful cilantro (wansoy) leaves
  • 5 green onion sliced
  • handful Thai basil leaves
  • lime wedges to serve


  • Heat a couple of swirls of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onions, garlic, galangal, and lemongrass until onions are soft and mixture is fragrant.
  • Add Thai red curry paste and mix thoroughly. Stir in coconut cream until paste dissolves into the liquid. Add kaffir lime leaf, fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice; cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors meld, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning, adding more fish sauce to make it saltier, sugar, or lime juice if it needs tang.
  • Add shrimp; stir and cook until just done, about 3 to 5 minutes. (Don’t overcook shrimp; they should be bright pink and still have a bit of a bite.) Adjust seasoning. Remove pan from heat.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook egg noodles according to package directions.
  • Divide noodles among 2 to 3 bowls. Top with sauce, dividing shrimp evenly.  Garnish generously with cilantro, green onions, and basil. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
